So much yelling, barking, growling, and razzing in this hopped-up garage-band appropriation of ”The Hustler,” in which a pool shark (writer-director-star Mars Callahan) has to shake off the strong arm of his shady mentor (Chazz Palminteri) in order to go legit! So much preening and faux hipsterism and clomping camera work! Overexerting thespians also include Christopher Walken and Rod Steiger.
